, which is let's not forget the fiscal cliff takes us back to the clinton era tax rates. i remember a lot of people on this network saying how great it was back then. we're going back to the clinton era tax rates and we boom then. the reason it didn't pinch us then, now it's deem and then it was great. i think the difference is the economy was improving, incomes were going up, housing prices were going up, people felt better. home prices are going up. that's a good thing, and the income issue is where we need to solve the problem. >> that's right. >> people can handle higher taxes if they make more money. part of that -- i'm going to get preachy here, reverend. the american people have to make a decision about what's important. keeping your neighbors employed. i know cost matters to a lot of people. my parents poet grew up poor. look the at what you buying if it koths made in mechanic and kips your neighbor working at a higher wage at a u.s. facility, think about that decision you're pak maiking. there's no country in the world -- sorry i'm off on a tangent. there's no country in the worl
schools. cops in the school program was initiated in the 1990s by bill clinton. whether an individual school wants that protection or doesn't want that protection is really up to the individual school and when we made that statement, whether wayne la pierre spoke a week ago, what has to happen and should happen is in every school district, administrators, teacher skpes parents should sit down and ask what's needed to protect the students in that school. others want private security guards. there may be places where they want volunteers to do it. we are willing to work with everybody on the questions. >> how do educators feel about giving teachers firearms training? bob hinky is a principal at mountain crest high school. how do you feel about this? >> well, i think the teachers have that right and so i feel like it's okay, but i have some things i'm very concerned about. i personally wouldn't carry a gun or get a concealed weapon myself. the concerns i have is the concealed weapons, i have a friend who just received his a couple of years ago and through the training, they never used a
program was initiated in the 1990s by bill clinton. whether an individual school wants that kind of protection or doesn't want that kind of protection is really up to the individual school and when we made that statement, when wayne lapeer spoke about a week ago, he suggested that what has to happen is in every school district, administrators, teachers and parents should sit down and what's needed to protect the students. some will want police officers there. others of them will want private security guards. there may be some places they want volunteers to do it. we're willing to work with everybody on those questions. but the fact is that is not a crazy suggestion. >> the teachers unions in the country don't want armed guards patrolling over schools. most police officers don't want that. >> let's not got into an argument about who teachers unions are interested in. we're not urging that teachers be armed. but in some schools, school districts and teachers are armed today. and if the school district and the teachers want to do it that way, that's really up to them it seems to me.
question about hair. you have covered hillary clinton. there is enormous chatter about her hair. >> this is so annoying. it goes back to the head and in 1992. -- it goes back to the headband in 1992. "washington post" has a new poll indicating her strong popularity. i cover her. i see the pluses and minuses, the good, bad, whatever. she is big things in this transition. when she was running for senate, it was not evident the former first lady could do that job. she came in quietly under the radar. there were than 13 women in the senate. she became a team player and developed key alliance. she proved herself to the point where she was considered a credible national candidate. she came in second for the nomination and ran a strong campaign. i think she has inspired a lot of people and worked very hard. the rest of her story is yet to be told. her hair is the least important thing about her. >> polls are showing her very high. that can coexist with people you have enormous respect for. >> what if instead of going to meetings and working hard, she was getting fluffed? then we would
clinton knew you had to cut capital gains taxes to stimulate capital formation and investment that grew the economy in the '90s, pretty robustly, i think democrats would agree. so there is a whole set of things that have to be done in order to keep this economy out of dipping back into a recession which is why we have missed the real conversation set very well by democrats and republicans on the bipartisan debt commission. for every one dollar in increased revenue, we need four dollars in spending cuts. the president has failed to meet that level. >> you had a bill on the floor of the house, and boehner failed to get that pushed through. what happened there? >> that was -- boehner's leadership, without a doubt, i think, took a huge hit with that one, but that still represents one-tenth of the problem. where's the president's leadership on spending? >> that represents the entire problem. >> really? not according to the bipartisan debt commission. revenues represent the entire problem. >> this is the speaker of the house that can't do his job, that's what that represents, and he can't lea
rates revert to where they were in the clinton years and remember that only affects half of the taxpayers in the country because only half of the people pay income tax so it's not 97%. it's actually only the top half. and that may not be so -- such a bad consequence from his point of view. it also brings in a significant amount of revenue, which allows him to spend in the way that i think he'd like to do, so it could take a good bit of pressure off of him and, you know, i'm just concerned that he may not feel the same pressure to keep taxes low as the rest of us do. he probably is not a believer that high tax rates would impede the economy at least not to the same extent that i believe that. >> yeah. finally, you know, a lot of the bulls who are encouraging investors to get into the market over the next 12 months say that cap x would come back even with a band-aid, that companies with all their cash and their refinancings have money to spend and that they will spend it in the new year. are you seeing any empirical evidence that suggests that is actually so? >> well, i'm n
